The Mexican National Team left poor results in the World Cup, although on this last day a player dazzled.
This is Luis Chávez, a Pachuca midfielder who had problems becoming a starter, as coach Gerardo Martino opted for other options in the process.
Chávez drew world attention by scoring Mexico’s second goal against Saudi Arabia.
At minute 52, he put the ball into the left corner by taking a penalty kick from outside the area.
The official FIFA account wrote: “Luis Chávez’s left foot must be taken to a museum, WHAT A CRAZYAAAA!”
Chávez came close to scoring his brace in the 72nd minute, but goalkeeper Alowais deflected the ball before it went into the right corner.
The Mexican midfielder received the Man of the Match award. In statements to the press, he acknowledged that there is a lot of frustration with this result.
We have a lot left to owe and in this one it was not enough for us, an inattention behind left us out. We’ll see what will happen next and who has to leave this team because this can’t happen, Mexico always has to reach the fourth game.
He also made strong statements about the game against Argentina, which Mexico lost 0-2.
The second game we didn’t understand what he (Tata Martino) wanted to propose”.
We defended well, but we didn’t create danger, so you can’t score goals, we ended up losing that game.
After the great goal, commentators on the official broadcast said that Chávez will no longer return to Pachuca, waiting for him to sign a contract with a European club.
Bayer Leverkusen was the first to raise their hand.
The German team tweeted and Pachuca reacted quickly:
Luis Chávez was born in 1996, in Cihuatlán, Jalisco.
The 26-year-old midfielder measures 1.78 meters. (He looks like C. Tangana, according to network users).
Your token has a value of €6.5 millionaccording to Transfermarkt.
He is left-handed and plays for Pachuca, with a contract that expires in 2025.
